The Recreation and Conservation Office created a mapped inventory of recreation and conservation lands and facilities across the state. This map locates parks and access sites in your neighborhood or identify places where there are gaps in the recreation and conservation system. This inventory is a work in progress.

A key piece of the state’s planning efforts was to create maps as a resource to inform and prioritize recommendations for the future. Three maps were created to inform the state and others about the geographic location and distribution of parks, trails, and conserved lands, and the population characteristics surrounding them.
Mapped Inventory – The first map is an inventory of outdoor recreation and conservation land and facilities. The mapped inventory is the foundation for understanding the current resources available and planning to address the public’s demand for recreation opportunities.
Grant Application Data Tool – The second map is a tool for applicants applying for grants from the Recreation and Conservation Funding Board. The grant application data tool identifies specific population characteristics that are important to implementing the board’s Unifying Strategy.
Level of Service Analysis – The third map is an assessment of the geographic distribution of recreation and conservation lands across the state. This “level of service” analysis measures park equity and the distribution and access to parks based on different types of facilities available.
